New combination therapeutic laser and TENS unit device speeds relief for chronic and acute pain sufferers

Multi Radiance Medical : 07 February, 2008  (New Product)
Multi Radiance Medical, in partnership with Rich-Mar, has announced has introduced a new therapeutic laser, Laser Prism with Area Identification Matrix (AIM) and its FDA 510(k)-cleared LaserStim accessory, to speed relief to chronic and acute pain sufferers.
Laser Prism’s specially designed LaserStim accessory can provide simultaneous or independent light and electrical stimulation applications for superior clinical applications and outcomes. In addition to its proven pain-relieving qualities, physical therapists and chiropractors can now be reimbursed for the time spent administering light therapy.

“One of the biggest challenges physical therapists and chiropractors faced, up until now, is the fact that laser treatments were not reimbursable by health insurance,” said Douglas Johnson, ATC, EES, CLS, and medical consultant to Multi Radiance Medical. “These professionals knew that therapeutic lasers worked, but struggled with both the initial purchase of the unit and determining what to charge patients for the treatment without reimbursement. The LaserStim accessory and its unique design changes all of that. Time spent administering light therapy with LaserStim is now being reimbursed by insurance. Most physical therapists and chiropractors will see the unit pay for itself in less than one month of treatments.”

The LaserStim is the only FDA-cleared combination emitter available that incorporates multiple radiances, including a super-pulsed laser with 25,000mW of peak power, red LEDs, infrared and static magnetic field, with electrical stimulation to promote an optimal healing environment.

Distributed exclusively by Rich-Mar, Laser Prism and LaserStim are FDA-cleared for temporary relief of minor muscle and joint pain, arthritis and muscle spasm, relieving stiffness, promoting relaxation of muscle tissue, and to temporarily increase local blood circulation where heat is indicated, as well as for the symptomatic relief and management of chronic, intractable pain and adjunctive treatment for post-surgical and post-trauma acute pain.

Physical therapists, chiropractors and other medical professionals are using products such as Laser Prism with Multi Radiance Technology to speed relief of shoulder, joint and carpal tunnel pain, arthritis, tendonitis, fibromyalgia and more. Laser Prism with AIM features four program modes, six setting and sweep frequencies, and a memory function that allows clinicians to save up to 50 individual patient programs.

Low level laser therapy, or therapeutic lasers, have been used for more than four decades to help speed pain relief in patients. Similarly, Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) units have been used for more than four decades to treat musculoskeletal pain. The combination of these therapies has significant pain-relieving properties for patients suffering from chronic and acute pain.
